If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, then do know that Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm. All your childhood nostalgia about catching monsters into a digital package has practically been given life, so to speak. There are now millions of people around several regions across the globe who are continuously playing the game to become “the very best.” However, the app, as with other applications at their early stages, does have its own set of glitches and bugs. This can hinder people from catching that ever lovable Pikachu, who might just be located across the street.
Fixing Common Issues in Pokémon Go
Step 1 – Perhaps the most common problem being faced by trainers recently is a message that says you can’t log into Pokémon Go. This is because of the sheer number of people trying to connect from around the world. And oftentimes, the servers will struggle in keeping up with the demand and ultimately fail. Due to it being a server issue, there’s nothing to do on your end. What you can do, however, is to go online and check on the Pokémon Go server status page so that you will get a heads up about the current condition of the game’s servers within your region.
Step 2 – Another problem being felt by many Pokémon Go trainers is a red message that will pop up from above their device’s screen that says “GPS signal not found.” Even though it is clear that you’ve turned your device’s GPS function on, the message can sometimes persist. What you can do is to turn on your device’s GPS off and on once again. If the problem is still there, trying closing the game and log back in.
Step 3 – What if you’re walking around the real world and then your virtual trainer suddenly stops moving, what do you do? If this is the case, then the application probably crashed. All you have to do is to restart the application by closing it first.
Step 4 – While Pokémon Go is great fun, and not to mention it can give you a bit of exercise since you have to walk around all over town in search of these digital monsters, you might not notice that this application is, in fact, a hungry monster out to eat whatever battery life your mobile device has. Before you know it, you’ve ran out of battery and you’re already half-a-mile away from home or from the nearest charging station. To remedy this, consider getting a power bank so that you can hunt more Pokémon as you are given more time, and more battery life for your device.
